OWH Sketch 174

Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge
Color Theme Week

A big weekend at OWH celebrating Memorial Day Weekend with a blog hop here ! Lots of our favorite stamping companies are showing their support so really worth the look (including Paper Smooches)! So this morning I saw this sketch and here is what I came up with! I just thought of a sailboats immediately  and PS one was the one. I used an impression plate to add a bit of vertical line to the card on the upper right panel, which is popped up. The anchor is die cut out then stamped, placed some twine for more texture.  So I am playing along in the sparks color  challenge as well.

Happy Crafting
